Ohio River
The OHIO RIVER, which streams westward from Pittsburgh , Pennsylvania , to Cairo, Illinois , is the largest tributary , by volume, of the Mississippi River in the United States . At the confluence , the Ohio is considerably bigger than the Mississippi ( Ohio at Cairo: 281,500 cu ft/s (7,960 m3/s); Mississippi at Thebes : 208,200 cu ft/s (5,897 m3/s) ) and, thus, is hydrologically the main stream of the whole river system, in no small part because its flow includes the mountain stream-fed tributaries along both banks of the Monongahela River and the Allegheny River as well as the tributaries of the Ohio itself
